Femetalism to take a hiatus

After a fabulous 5 years working with some great bands, promoters, bloggers and radio shows Femetalism has made the difficult decision to take some well deserved time off.

As regular readers will already know, Femetalism started as a project for my eCommunications degree back in 2010.  Since then Femetalism has become a huge part of our lives and something that we not only love but something that we know you have all enjoyed too. We have interviewed and featured numerous fantastic bands, have been involved with a load of great live music events and we even released our very own promotional compilation album series. We really don't want it to end.

However, 2016 marks the beginning of a new and exciting adventure for us, and one that will inevitably take us away from what we have been doing with Femetalism. Without being able to commit 100% to the site, we feel that now is the time to take some time out. We fully intend to return at some point in the future and you will no doubt see us at the odd gig and festival throughout the year. For now, though, we will no longer be accepting promotional material from bands or sponsoring live music events, and we won't be popping up in your social media news feeds very often at all.

In the meantime, if you haven't already, please download the Femetalism compilation series, Forged in Stone and Steel, from Bandcamp, and do continue to Like and Follow us on Facebook and Twitter so that when we come back you are the first to hear! Your support over the last 5 years has been phenomenal and we appreciate it very much indeed.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Emma & Craig

Valkyrian Festival 2015 - Photo Round Up

On Saturday 21st November we headed over to Selby for the very last Valkyrian Festival. This year was particularly special for Femetalism as we were honoured to be sponsoring this final event.

We had a great time with a great selection of bands playing.   As always, we tried to capture all of the bands performing and and we were able to grab shots of most of the bands.  You can see our full album of photos from the event on our photos page or by going to
